Friday the 13th is sandwiched between Thursday the 12th and Saturday the 14th.
There is nothing more mystical about the date than that.
However, like most arbitrary dates in the modern world, there seems to have been no issue with the date before the 19th century.
Friggatriskaidekaphobia is “fear of Friday the 13th” so, it does have the benefit of having a long, complicated sounding name attached to it.
We here at Human Services Consulting and Training (HSCT) take the long view however, and wonder, what Thursday the 12th must feel like.
Or, Saturday the 14th.
